Loan Transponders

RC-Timing v4.3 (and later) allows transponders to be loaned to drivers. This is useful if you have a few loan transponders that are kept by drivers for the meeting and returned at the end of the day.

Configuring

Before this feature can be used, you need to configure the loan transponders:

  1. Go to the Settings Screen and click Lap Counting.
  2. Click the Handout / Loan Transponders button.
  3. Use the Add button to add a row for each loan transponder.
  4. Enter the transponder numbers into the Transponder column. Leave the Car number blank to indicate that these are loan transponders not assigned to specific cars.

Loaning

When booking a driver in, they can now be assigned a loan transponder:

  1. Click the Select? button next to the Transponder number on the drivers details screen. This will display the Transponder Select form.
  2. Select the Loan Transponder tab at the top of the form.
  3. From the Loan Transponder drop-down box, select the transponder to loan to the driver. Only transponders that have not already been loaned will be available.
  4. Click OK.
  5. The loan transponder number will now be shown for the driver. The number will be in brackets on all displays and printouts to indicate that it is a loan transponder.
